Welcome to
KURT JONSSON:s homepage !

This picture of me is taken in Vemdalen in the swedish mountains - by my wife Gurli - when we were on a weekend trip, to look at the wonderful colors of fall, in October.

Hello, my name is Kurt Jonsson and I´m living in Sweden in the city of Sundsvall 250 miles north of Stockholm - along the coast of the Baltic sea. I am a journalist, and I have been working for The Swedish Broadcasting Corporation since 1962. I retired from my work on april 1st 1999, but will still  work as a freelance journalist as long as I can. 
I am married since 1962 with Gurli, who is a X-ray nurse at the hospital here in Sundsvall. We have two children - Mats born 1964 and Christina (Kicki) born 1968. They have their own families now and also one child each - Mats´s daughter Emily is now eight and Kicki´s Sofia is eleven - and our grandchildren are just great - you can see them on pictures from 1995 if you CLICK here . There are also some other photos of the Jonsson family from that year.

IF YOU CLICK HERE we have some pictures of the kids,from the summer of 1998. .

CLICK HERE to see pictures from the WEDDING of our daughter Kicki in January 1999!!

IF YOU CLICK HERE you can see pictures from our vacation with our two grandchildren, Sofia and Emily to Florida in June 1999.

I moved in here in my Silicon Valley homesite in November 1995, and my intention is to update this homepage, now and then. My greatest interests, professionally, are JOURNALISM, RADIO and TRAVELLING and they are all topics that you can find a lot about on the Internet. You can  get some hints of some few interesting websites that I have found navigating on the Internet, if you look further down this page.

If you have any suggestions about what I more shall put here in my Silicon Valley home, please send me an e-mail
